Children’s Ministry Appreciation Dinner

Sunday, March 4, 5:30-8:30 PM, Downstairs. The Children's Ministry leadership team would like to invite all Children's Ministry workers to a time of refreshment in the Lord Jesus as we gather for a meal, worship, prayer, and His Word. Child care will not be provided as we are hoping for all the children's workers to be able to break away for an evening to give our entire focus to refreshing ourselves in the Lord Jesus Christ! Please RSVP by February 25 to Rusty Grunditz.

Join a Small Group!

At the center of why we do small groups is to see people nurtured, loved, supported, encouraged, and have their lives impacted by the Word of God. Groups come in all shapes and sizes — married couples, singles, mixed/couples & singles, men, women, with kids, no kids. No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you. Check out the descriptions of the groups that are being offered. Go HERE. Questions? Contact Kenya Mejia at kenya@theurbanrefuge.com.
